Shortly thereafter, the ascent to the Heidelstein begins, which can also be easily found in the panorama of the Rhön with its transmission mast. On the open landscape at 926 meters above sea level, the view opens up over wide areas of the Rhön and, if visibility is good, beyond.
From here it goes downhill in a straight line in the direction of the Red Moor. Shortly before the NABU house and the plank path, however, this circular route turns off so that this is not approached directly. You then return to the starting point of the circular hike via the Münzkopf.
Safety informationThe tourist paths of the Rhön are mostly used by other active people (hikers, mountain bikers, cyclists, walkers, horse riders, cross-country skiers, etc.).
We ask all active nature sports enthusiasts to show consideration for one another. Of course, the same applies to nature - it is worth protecting. In the Rhön, nature sports should therefore only be practiced in daylight on designated paths and areas.
Tips and hints
Getting thereArriving by car is easily possible via the A71. Leave the autobahn at exit 25 Bad Neustadt and drive onto the B279 in the direction of Bad Neustadt. Shortly thereafter, turn right in the direction of Bischofsheim to stay on the B279. This takes you to Bischofsheim. Leave the main road at the Bischofsheim / Hochrhönstraße exit (2nd exit from Bischofsheim). Then follow the road in the direction of Hochrhönstraße. The hiking car park is reached shortly after and is on the left side of the road.
